Rezius, a gladiator, is awarded an army command when he saves the life of Rabirius, who rules Acaste as regent in the name of the 10-year-old king, Darius. A band opposed to Rabirius, an evil monarch, is led by Princess Sira, Darius' sister. Rabirius decides to marry Sira in order to proclaim himself king. To remove all obstacles he attempts to drown Darius and Rezius, but they escape and join Sira's band. After much combat in and out of the arena, Rezius kills Rabirius, the revolt is successful, and Sira, Rezius, and the young king receive the acclaim of the populace.
